Over 500 rescued or found safe after Colorado floods
Almost half of the people who were declared unaccounted for or missing following the devastating floods in Colorado have been found safe following an intensive search by rescue teams.
About 1,200 people hadn't been heard from early Monday, five days after the floods ran through northern Colorado. This number was reduced to 648 as rescue efforts continued later in the day, according to figures released by the Colorado Office for Emergency Management late Monday.
So far, officials have reported 215 air rescues, 11 ground rescues, and 120 pet rescues. 567 people previously unaccounted for have been contacted.
